Should MTV Remove Michael Jackson's Name From Video Vanguard Award?

Should MTV Remove Michael Jackson's Name From Video Vanguard Award? MTV is said to be thinking about removing the King of Pop’s name from the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award given out at the the VMAs. Would that be the right call? The equivalent to a lifetime achievement honor, the first Vanguard Awards were handed out in 1984 at the inaugural MTV Video Music Awards, to David Bowie, The Beatles and A Hard Day’s Night director Richard Lester. In 1991, three years after Jackson himself was bestowed with the award, it was renamed the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Most recently, in 2018, Jennifer Lopez became the first Latin artist to receive the award.

Costello will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, with a wide-ranging catalog of lyrically rich songs that span everything from punk and new wave to country and soul.

Baby” and releasing the album Tall, Dark and Handsome in 2019.
